Welcome to Year 3

Welcome back! We hope you had a fantastic summer and you are excited to be in Year 3.

Our topic for this half term is Volcanoes and Earthquakes. We will be looking at the structure of the Earth, how and why volcanoes are formed and erupt. We will also be creating our very own volcano which will erupt.

PE is on a Monday and Tuesday and this Half term we are focusing on gymnastic routines and Rugby. 

Spellings are given to the children on a Friday and they will be tested the following Friday.

There will be a weekly times tables tests on a Monday.

Books can be changed daily if the reading record is signed. Every child should be reading at least 4 times a week for around 15 minutes. Children are responsible for changing their own reading books.

PE

One of our new topic for PE this half term is looking at developing our team work skills

Maths

We have been learning about 3d shape properties this week, therefore we put our knowledge into action whilst working in groups to create 3d shapes out of marshmallows and lolly stick

PE

Within our invasion game topic, we have been focusing on rugby. Everyone in Year 3 has developed their throwing and receiving by using a swing pass and can now use this in a mini game situation. They have learnt lots of different tactics for how to score a point when a defender is added into the game.

RE

Our current RE topic is called visitors which fits well with advent. We have been looking at how we can be good visitors and what it feels like when we have visitors or if we are a visitor somewhere. In our last lesson we looked at a few pieces of scripture about how the shepherd’s heard about the birth of Jesus and went to visit Mary, Joseph and baby Jesus. All children created interview questions which they would like to ask the shepherd’s, we then interviewed our very own shepherd’RE.

Rock Detectives

Today, we looked at becoming geologists and we were closely observing the appearance and texture of a variety of different rocks. We used this information to help us put these rocks into different categorises.

Using ICT to develop our mathamatical knowledge of ordering numbers

History

We had a visitor come into School to bring our Stone Age to Iron Age topic to an end.

We learnt all about the historic timeline, using actions to help us remember the whole timeline. We looked at artefacts from the prehistoric period, we created our own house which looked similar to those in the Bronze Age. Finally, we discovered how difficult it would have been to draw cave paintings.

Our lesson was very interesting
